IE6 Preview?

Post by vickiwatson » Sat Jan 08, 2011 1:27 pm

In the Preview window you can change the preview between IE 5, 7, and 8. Why is there no IE6 there?

Also what is Edge Mode in that same dropdown box?

The Preview window always "uses" whatever version of IE you have on your system. In other words: if you have IE 7 then the Preview window displays IE 7 and when you have IE 8 then the Preview window displays IE 8.

What you're referring to is so-called IE compatibility mode, and it is available for IE 8 only. More info on IE 8 document compatibility is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... S.85).aspx

I don't have IE5 installed, so why do I see that?

Because IE8 can render things in "IE5-mode". Please read about IE8 document compatibility here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... S.85).aspx
